  • Polish football’s racism problem | Show Racism The Red Card
    Pulski of Never Again We had agreed to meet in the Stalin built Palace of Culture and Science in central Warsaw where I expected his offices to be located No he said he did not have his office there or anywhere else in Warsaw Partly through lack of funding but more importantly if they had an office Jacek was fearful it would be a firebomb target for racists We then spent some time driving round Warsaw to find a cafe where we could talk in peace He showed me photographs taken during Polish football matches in the last two years where brazen images of neo Nazi symbols had been displayed This not only included the White Legion banner of the infamous skinheads of Legia Warsaw but most chillingly a picture of away fans in a lower division league match forming a human swastika in the stands He then told me the story of the black player who had been hospitalised by a third division club s supporters despite scoring two goals And all because they did not want an Afro Caribbean in their side He told me that I because of my brown skin would not be safe in more than two or three grounds in Poland I was made very welcome at Legia Warsaw But there were areas of the ground I was told I could not go into because of the colour of my skin This was confirmed when I met Dixon Choto the Zimbabwean international who plays for Legia Warsaw Before meeting him I had spent some time watching his team mates train This could have been a training session anywhere people of different colours united by football But as we walked round the stadium he pointed to a stand where his friends and family were not welcome because of the colour of their skin He also told me I should not go there as I would not be safe He also said he had his share of monkey chants and bananas being tossed at him This happened more at away matches now Worse still he said when he reacted to such racism on the field of play Polish football authorities called him to a disciplinary hearing where the opposition manager said he did not hear the chants despite being heard loud and clear by Dixon s wife who was at home watching on television I went to a Legia Warsaw home match at the Polish Army Stadium where theteam fielded black players without any visible problems although I was not able to go anywhere near the stand which takes up a whole side of the ground where the ultras gather Before the match I had been to a bar near the ground where the hardcore supporters meet It was made clear by some fans who feared for my safety and that of my crew I should leave I managed to speak to these moderate fans who did not deny that racism existed but insisted that Poland

    and a German tourist The Chinese national who was living in Dublin was thrown in to the Royal Canal by the men after they tried to rob him Last April Estonian Valerii Ranert was beaten to death by a gang of youths who hijacked his car on the Naul Road in north Dublin Many Polish people will be extremely angry or frustrated for to them it shows the level of extremity that hate can take in some people and the realisation that it could have been them While many in mainstream Ireland have failed to acknowledge the presence and extent of racism in 2006 a comprehensive survey of the ESRI revealed that 1 3 immigrants experienced racism It is being seen by some Poles who have written in websites that it is reflective of a trend that the Irish no longer like us Unfortunately it has been the case that some people of Irish nationality may never have liked them or many others The youth who committed this attack is described as being from a dysfunctional family Racism towards Polish may just have been one of many emotions at work in the mind of the youth as he committed this dreadful act Yet in the increase sense of job insecurity particularly within the construction industry where many Polish work this feeling that a changed in mood against them will be accutely felt by Polish workers Even in a country of near full employment for the past number of years segregation has been a feature of the changed demographic Ireland This segregation and growth of parrallel communities of varying nationalities has been an increasing feature with increased immigration In 2004 tens of thousands of workers from eastern Europe moved to Ireland and in this group many did not have English Even though they have been able to get jobs in the past number of years without English they will have an increased sense of isolation from mainstream Ireland With this there is a resentment against immigrants amongst a section of Irish people They include those who have both benefited from the boom but particularly those who have not Perhaps it is out of a sense of fear of what is to come or out of an insecurity of their own sense of identity It is a feeling I have come across in different environments The government has committed 9million to supporting the integration of immigrants in Ireland In the context firstly of the annual budget of an overall exchequer spend of 51b for 2008 this is but a drop in the ocean Add to this the fact that our country has experienced immigration of a proportion more rapid and more profound in its impact on us as compared to any other in the world The issue of integration and immigration is the most profound questions facing Irish politics Increased integration leads to reduced racism It is thus important to note that integration cannot be achieved without also tackling racism This week
